1. CD-ROM mount needs source <--> source needs CD-ROM mount

I've just ploughed through the entirety of misc,hardware and setup, to no

blah, or other error'.  I interrogated sbpcd.h (I *did* install the includes)

the source off the CD - re-booting off the boot disk (sbpcd) and trying a
reinstall  from the CD using setup gives a warning that the CD drive can't be

Should I delete the linux partition and start from scratch again?  I do really
need to access the CD drive, and I realise now that it is kind of useful to
